House of Heroes' SUBURBA To Street August 3
“100 Bands To Check Out” – AbsolutePunk.net
House of Heroes is set to release their latest effort, SUBURBA on August 3 on Gotee Records, produced by Mark Lee Townsend (Relient K, Deas Vail) and mixed by J.R. McNeely (The Almost, Paramore). Check out the band’s revamped site at thehouseofheroes.com. See them on tour throughout 2010 with upcoming shows with Seabird on the Bird House Tour in July and then with Treaty of Paris in August.
Suburba is endlessly poppy, galactically ambitious, and dripping with honest, candid emotion, this is what a rock record is supposed to sound like. This is what a rock record is supposed to feel like. Harkening back to days when music was wide-eyed and meant a whole lot more. Think classic Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, The Who, E.L.O. with a touch of Meatloaf. That’s right, Meatloaf. Broad and anthemic at certain moments, yet vulnerable and intimate at others. There are driving, heavy tracks, as well as harmonic ballads.
“This record is about growing up in middle class suburbia,” states vocalist Tim Skipper. ”It’s about fighting for your own identity in the face of society's ideas about love, money, religion and power. It’s about having big dreams and going after them with reckless abandon, yet having to reconcile the fact that things aren't always going to go your way. And it’s about realizing, throughout all of it, that God is real and is the one constant among all the variables of life.”
The opening moments of the first track, "Relentless," will conjure up images of 4th of July fireworks, backyard bar-b-ques, and humid summer evenings. As the record moves forward you find yourself not just singing along, but seeing vivid imagery as House of Heroes sketches through your ears into your imagination. Hopeful and wide-eyed, House of Heroes harkens the voices of youth in the USA.
Look for the band to tour nonstop through out the late summer, fall and winter of 2010 with the release of SUBURBA.
